19/00001 - Charging for the disposal of non-household waste at the Kent County Council Household Waste Recycling Centres (soil, rubble, hardcore and plasterboard)

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Planning, Highways, Transport and Waste

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The Kent Waste Disposal Strategy (2017-2035) was adopted in February 2017 and sets out the overarching ambition for KCC Waste Management. Analysis has shown that the current waste infrastructure will not cope with the expected levels of waste growth anticipated as a result of the forecast population increase. Before considering any potential funding for added infrastructure, officers are developing projects and policy changes designed to reduce demand on site, create revenue streams and create clearer intelligence that will enable stronger and more successful enforcement actions against individuals defrauding the Authority through illegal disposal of trade and commercial waste.



As Cabinet Member for Planning, Highways, Transport and Waste, I agree to introduce disposal charges for soil, rubble, hardcore and plasterboard at the KCC HWRCs, with charges and limits as follows:


·         Soil, rubble and hardcore: £4 per bag (or part bag)/ item (a bag being up to the size of a standard black sack); (Appendix B)

·         Plasterboard: £6 per bag (or part bag)/ sheet (a bag being up to the size of a  standard black sack); and

·         A daily limit on soil, rubble and hardcore, of a maximum of 5 bags/ items per day
